Rate Yourself on 20 Character Traits
With Scripture Verses for Each One

by Dave Ahl

We all know that for a healthy life that is pleasing to God, "character" is important. Character is not just an abstract concept to talk about. It is much deeper than that. It is who you are when no one is looking (and when everyone is looking). It is the inside "you." Here are 20 aspects of character. How would you rank yourself on each of these? And are there other qualities that you think should be on this list? Keep this list in your Bible, refer to it, and make a note of verses for those aspects of character on which you feel that you need help.
